Spinning yarn from raw fibres is a captivating craft that allows artisans to create unique and beautiful textiles. However, fibres must be properly prepped before spinning can start. This is where Ashford Carding & Fibre Preparation Tools come into play. 

With a long and illustrious history in the fibre arts industry, Ashford has made a name for itself as a reliable brand by offering spinners high-quality tools that make the process of preparing fibres for weaving and other crafts quick and easy.

Hand Carders

Ashford offers a range of hand carders, including standard hand carders and blending hand carders. These carders have comfortable handles, ensuring a smooth and easy carding experience. The carding cloth is securely bonded to the carder, providing excellent durability and longevity.

Drum Carders

Drum carders are perfect for swiftly and effectively processing greater amounts of fibre. The large-diameter drum and sturdy design of Ashford's drum carders guarantee a smooth operation and reliable carding output. Spinners can easily make batts or rolags for projects like felting or spinning with Ashford drum carders.

Blending Board

The Ashford blending board features a large carding area covered in a high-quality carding cloth. Spinners can layer different fibres, colours, and textures on the blending board, and then use the included blending brush or hand carders to blend them together. This process results in beautifully blended rolags, ready to be spun into yarn.
